An Air Canada flight is currently circling above Madrid to burn enough fuel to make an emergency landing.



A plane with almost 130 passengers onboard is preparing to make an emergency landing in Spain after parts of the landing gear reportedly fell into one of the engines shortly after take-off.


The plain is beying escorted by two jets atm


Earlier today, Madrid Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport was shut for around an hour due to drone activity. Airport operator Aena said there had been 26 diversions.

Fingers crossed for a safe landing minus the undercarriage.
Pilots practice this sort of thing and the ground crew are ready so it should hopefully be a happy ending.

Let's hope so.
Wouldn't want to be one of the passengers though, must be scary, even knowing that the whole crew is trained for this.

Would be cool if they filmed the landing in the liveblog!

It appears to have landed, It does not appear that the landing gear folded up or anything. I saw that the landing gear was involved but all three were down.

Been following this with my Partner, great result for all involved!

I'd be interested to read the report (for dummies) when it comes out, landing gear parts in the engines sounds like the sorta' thing that probably shouldn't happen,

other source saying part of the landing gear got into the engine

Probably debris from the tire.

It was a blown tire. The only way it got into the engine is if it was one of the nose gear tires, which rarely suffer a failure like that. They may have had an unrelated engine issue, but thre odds of it being tire related are slim. I can't think of a piece of tire debris causing an engine failure by going through it off the top of my head.

ETA- What may have happened is that a main failed and hit the side of the engine damaging it.

These incidents are always blown out of proportion by the media.

This sounds like last year at Heathrow? Who are these unknown drone operators?

You'd be surprised at how many videos I've seen of some complete moron flying their commercial drone as close as possible to commercial aircraft just so they can get some attention.
